Beleive me, if there was no reason to do this, I would be so happy. I 
have used Centos 4.2 for a shorewall firewall with the intention of 
using it for Multi-ISP. I had a M0n0wall firewall on a Soekris 4801 with 
a CF card, works like a dream, but only for one ISP. I need to divert 
traffic onto an ADSL feed, so I needed a Multi-ISP firewall.
What I didn't know was, Centos 4.2 does not work for this. It lacks the 
Connmark and Policy match patches for netfilter and iptables. Oh well, 
time to roll up the sleeves and learn kernel patching.
My wife wants to know why I don't just get a General...
